Executive Director

"It is my privilege to have been called to be director of Living Waters. I have been a high school teacher for 23 years so this is quite a change for me, but a good one. I enjoy watching the children grow and work with their teachers and develop all kinds of skills. My field of study was Family and Consumer Sciences which has at its core, the development and training of people working in the child care area. As a work program coordinator, I had been involved with many day care centers in the Joliet area and was responsible for the high school students working in those centers. Now to have this hands on opportunity is a rewarding experience. My door is always open to talk about the center, kids or anything. I really enjoy that part of my position. As a mother of 6, I have had many experiences with the raising of kids of all types. Believe me- no two are alike! It is that kind of heart I bring to this center. Every kid and every parent deserves a chance, and I am here to support that."




"Hi, I'm Katrina, the director. I have been working at Living Waters in many different capacities since February of 2013. I have 5 wonderful children of my own ranging from 19 years old to 25 years old. I have been working in church nurseries and running children's programs at churches for the past 25 years. I have spent my life loving and teaching children. I thrive on the joy and wonder I see through children's eyes."
